Occupying Latino Male Bodies Seminar

Statement of Purpose: 

The seminar explores the challenges, dangers, and pitfalls of occupying a Latino male body. Although some attention has been given to issues surrounding Hispanics and/or women in the academy, none has focused on what it means to occupy a Latino male body. And yet, Hispanic men face unique challenges that complicate their ability to teach, as well as their personal lives. We would argue that how society constructs male Hispanic bodies is problematic, especially when said bodies find themselves occupying positions of authority. For this reason, we are gathering Hispanic male scholars of religion to serve as consultants helping to address issues of ethnic and racial identity. This is the first time male Latino professors will be asked to reflectively examine, share, and create new models centered on being. The gathering is charged with exploring this often neglected phenomena so as to construct possible pedagogies of empowerment that can be employed, not just by the six participants. Through the dissemination of our findings, we hope to begin a broader discussion on the materiality of Latino men.
